As the Professional Development Manager at Creative Learning Systems, I spend much of my time training and supporting teachers so they can successfully facilitate learning in our learning spaces, called SmartLabs. When SmartLab Facilitators are first trained, they spend four days learning about the philosophy, the approach, and all of the resources in the SmartLab.
Congratulations to James Hart School (Homewood, IL) on their official SmartLab ribbon cutting! Over 100 community members attended the celebration where students provided a program orientation and demonstrated their work.
The James Hart SmartLab was installed this summer and supports STEM and communication media arts programs for grades 6-8.
“This is where futures are created; where (students) find their passion” said School Board President, Shelly Marks.
